New Mortal Kombat movie was super fun.

Not interested, but read two reviews today (Star Trib, and I forget where I saw the other). Star Trib one first, both are summarized/paraphrased.

1. This is not trying to get new fans. It gives current fans what they want, which is insane action and bloodshed. It succeeds in that. (favorable review overall)

2. This is a horrid movie, all it is, is one giant action scene with multiple fights, and probably the end of video game movies. Zero plot, zero intelligence, might as well just play the video game itself. (obviously non-favorable plot).

Synecdoche, New York (Netflix disc):

A theatre director struggles with his work, and the women in his life, as he creates a life-size replica of New York City inside a warehouse as part of his new play.

BO. RING. What a friggin’ yawner. “Plodding” would be a compliment.
